Lyrics

Where are all your brothers and sisters?
'Cause I hope they're not all like you
Where are all your brothers and sisters?
'Cause I get so lonely when there's just you

Why do you hate me so bad?
'Cause I was the best friend you ever had
Tell me why you gave up so easily
Yeah I guess that you just lost your head

The same water falls in lightning and snow
The same scene of failure every night
The same echoes reach me from far away
Echoes of the end and the feign in my old day

Caught a small scene on my mom's TV
She watched it when she was lonely at night
Oh God I hate you
Telling me what's gonna happen the rest of my life

The same water falls in lightning and snow
The same scene of failure every night
It's read all off of your face
It's in everything you say
Echoes in the end
And the fade of night and day

Get so lonely
